An Interesting Take on Media and Bias

by Jeff

What follows is post from “Keeping Life Honest and Truthful”, a blog by my Executive Producer Larry Kutzler, President of City Site Urban Media The  critical point of his well stated case is this:  We all come to life with a bias, that is, we LEAN a certain way that is unique to us.  Even […]

The Real Lesson of Charlotte South Carolina

by Jeff

One of the most defining characteristics of Christianity is forgiveness. The Christians in Charlotte who stood before the killer of their loved ones, and forgave him, were doing so because they themselves are forgiven because of what Jesus has done for them. And these people also know that they are not God, and that continuously […]

Jesus is the Source of All Virtue

by Jeff

When Virtue Becomes Dangerous A Guest Post By Larry Kutzler, Producer God’s Work in Progress Christians are like guns, people want to ban our presence in the marketplace, in politics, and in society as a whole. Our values and moral foundations collide with the values of this world. We are often seen in the same […]

Business and Government An Unholy Alliance?

by Jeff

Government and Business An Unholy “Alliance”? I’m protecting the person and business identity deliberately at the owners request.  She is very concerned about potential consequences from local government or the press if she were ever identified.    This story is about a small business relocation. Mary is a devout Christian who walks-out her faith in her […]

Keeping it Honest and Truthful- a Guest Post by Larry Kutzler

by Jeff

WHOSE CHURCH IS IT ANYWAY?– By Larry Kutzler  Yesterday, I talked about accountability, and how leadership positions in a local church, or in ministry organizations, need strong accountability factors in order to maintain the right perspective. Too often we hear people say inappropriate things such as: “I have been going to John MacArthur’s church,” or “John […]

Our Connectivity is Unity- And What Our Ministry is About

by Jeff

Effective networks are the key to effective human interaction. Networks, not “networking” are what I’m referring to. Our interconnectedness is a fact. How we utilize that is up to us. I believe that God’s Work in Progress has been called by God to build a network.  How about 10 million Christ Followers, going to work […]

Courage vs Confidence

by Jeff

Courage Vs Confidence Confidence vs Courage- God calls us to be confident towards Him- to be bold in approaching the Throne because of Jesus. But he calls us to be courageous in our lives in the world. NOT confident, courageous. Why? Because GOD can be trusted, the world is fallen and broken. Do NOT be […]

Politics and the Golden Rule- Ed Stetzer is simply right.

by Jeff

Just read a great article by Ed Stetzer ( A Southeastern Baptist Pastor), who wrote about the need for mutual benefit, respect and civility in our political discourse.  He is  correct and right.  Politics is meant to be the civil solution process to our collective needs, regulation and security, and objective (meaning its about it, […]

Ask God, then begin to Work, and Let Go of HOW He Helps You

by Jeff

Ask God, then begin to Work, and Let Go of HOW He Helps You   Here is  great story that illustrates the above point.  Many times, I’ve asked God for something and then tried to tell HIM how to do it, or better yet, how I wanted it done.   But is knows HOW ALL […]

Purpose, Mission, Calling..Meaning, the final answer

by Jeff

Much has been written about Purpose, Mission and Calling.  I would like to offer a definitive view, but am also listening as I write this. Do you live your life on-purpose?  I am saddened by how many people I know live their lives from day to day or moment to moment without meaningful intent.  With […]

by Jeff

Great Faith- You know the Lord’s Prayer? You know that line- Thy Kingdom come…Thy will he done? Well that line is actually a “command” in the Greek text. Command Jeff? Yes a command. The intention is that you are CRYING-OUT to God….God I want what is being done in heaven to happen HERE!!! NOW!!! Please […]

Great Faith -Confessing our sin

by Jeff

Great Faith- “If we confess our sins, He is faithful (trustworthy) and just to forgive us.” This is from 1 John chapter 1 verse 9. It’s important for you and I to keep “short accounts” with God. He knows about our sin, but our offering it to him, as sin, is the key to forgiveness. […]

Free Enterprise- It’s Older Than You Think

by Jeff

Our freedom comes from God, and from being created in His image and likeness. The evidence for this is our free thought.  No one, not even God can control your thoughts.  Because we think freely, we have the “right” to express our thoughts with speech and behavior, such as spoken and written words, music, dance, […]
